    Boys & Girls Clubs of America

    The Boys & Girls Clubs of America have been experiencing a reduction in teen participation over the years. Over the last year, they've made a sustained effort to engage these at-risk teens. This project would be in furtherance of that effort.

    User problem: Older teens had been experiencing a reduction in participation over the years and desperately wanted a place they could author their own stories.

    What solutions did I consider?

    From Wireframes to Finished Product

    I decided pretty early on that the best way to segment the content was to use two separate navigations, not only establishing a reference point for the domain name, but also creating a clear distinction between life at the club, and life outside of the club. The goal was to then contextually cross-pollinate the content using similar and relevant links.

    Mobile Adaptation

    As a platform for sharing stories, MyClubMyLife.com was poised to create an experience that would excite teens at the prospect of seeing their work published, since neither writing nor sharing writing comes naturally for them at that age.

    Artwork Challenge

    Another way of engaging teens, especially those who might still not feel comfortable writing, was the concept of recreating the club logo using the materials around them. I felt that this would create a fun challenge with a long shelf life, so I created a spot for those pieces to cycle on the homepage. My initial approach is shown above a student submission, below.
